I like that it's very flexible, so we can design our automation the way we need to. Some other RPA tools don't really allow us to use all the applications that for our team. It's also very easy to use. There is a lot of drag-and-drop. There are many different ways to complete a solution. For example, if we're trying to manipulate Excel data, sometimes one solution will be really slow and ineffective, but UiPath gives us the ability to find multiple ways to do the same thing and complete the same solution much more quickly.

Lewis Hardwick says in an UiPath review
Co-Founder at a tech consulting company
I would say the most valuable features of UiPath are the scalability and the stability of the product as well as the ease of use and rapid deployment. It's easy to learn. It's easy to get return on investment when using UiPath. We tend to see that clients tend to deploy a blend of both attended and unattended bots. This tends to balance out because the unattended bots are the ones that augment existing processes and cherry pick out parts that a human still sits doing, whereas unattended bots are probably the more valuable in terms of removing the human element altogether.

Ruairi Adam says in an UiPath review
Head of Innovation and Technology at a tech services company
For me, the biggest feature is that my developers love it. And if my developers are happy, then I'm happy. We're totally agnostic and we use multiple providers. But the developers definitely absolutely adore the product. The speed that in which it can be deployed is something I really like as well because that cuts down on delivery times. I also like the ease of use. I like the fact that we can program our own .NET to plug into it and there are APIs for multiple different solutions, and the convenience of artificial intelligence and machine-learning and those types of capabilities as well.

Orchestrator lets you start a credential stair, so you can get the credentials in a safe way. Before this, they were afraid that credentials would be stored somewhere and people could see them. I think it's really important for our customers that you can do that in Orchestrator. The scheduling feature is also valuable of course. In terms of ease of use, I would rate this solution as four out of five. I think it's very easy, but our customers are sometimes not so technical. When they come from the business side, it's somehow hard for them to understand. I would give the RPA Academy training program five out of five. Without it, I don't think I could have started implementing this solution. I did the developer program just for a general understanding of how everything works: how Orchestrator works and how it all works together. For me, it was really important to do the training then. It was very good, so I really liked it. View full review »
ApurvaBoradia says in an Automation Anywhere (AA) review
CEO at Nine A Business Connect
So far, we have seen that a valuable feature of Automation Anywhere is the ease of integrating it with multiple systems. It can very easily integrate with an environment of an organization. It helps in a quick go to access and implementation. You don't have to spend days implementing Automation Anywhere software. You can quickly go drag and drop and do an ease of configuration. You can actually get your bot up and running very fast, which is one important advantage. For a business user, it is not very technical or complex software. Before this, they need to have a lot of training. So, that is the ease and simplicity with which Automation Anywhere can be deployed, not only by a technical team, but also by the business owners. I found this to be a very unique, competitive advantage. View full review »

The most valuable feature of this solution is the SMART Recorder. The overall developer client has an easy-to-use UI. The Control Room, scheduling features, and client repository are really good features that make day-to-day bot development and enhancement quite quick and easy. The PDF Integration feature is also quite helpful, as well as the Send email command that helps us skip a lot of Outlook-based steps that are not necessary. View full review »

Nicola Bentham says in a NICE Robotic Automation review
Business Readiness & Continuous Improvement Support Manager at Swinton
The standout feature is that we've been able to change it completely, visually. It has got icons, you can go into links, it's very colorful. We changed the whole look and feel of it in January. We developed all that last year with the developer. Guidance at other places can be a script, a Word document, or some sort of application which is there for the agent to go through while doing sales. What we've done with the RTI client is that we've brought it into a bit more of a 21st-century feel. Our agents have the ability to move around when they want, click into stuff. They use it according to how their conversations go with the customer. There are extra features we built into it. For example, at one stage, they can click a button and it checks another system for another product that we sell, a monthly product, because we don't want to sell that at the same time giving the client duplicate coverage.

UiPath is rich in features. The OCR feature is very handy to extract structured and semi-structured data from documents. A rich set of activities and an open platform is pretty helpful in creating solutions out of the box. The community forum is quite helpful in solving issues when they appear. View full review »

The general features, that we can automate a task that takes hours into minutes, are valuable. But as far as an individual product feature goes, there isn't anything more specific. View full review »

The most valuable feature of UiPath is we have direct access to read and write data in our applications, so we don't need to build a back-end interface. View full review »
Thomas McEvoy says in an UiPath review
Lead Associate at Booz Allen Hamilton Holding
The most valuable features are the unattended bots. Initially, we are going to be looking at a number of attended bots in a pilot phase for our HR internal operations personnel. We are going to come in and try to remove tasks from their daily lives, such as ten minute tasks brought down to five seconds, or we could just completely eliminate them, making them unattended. The training and certification online is very helpful. The software is easy to use, as a drag and drop function. Even if it wasn't, the type of support that we get from the people who work for UiPath is paramount to the capability of the tool. The ease of use has exceeded our expectations. View full review »

* UiPath has a Community Edition for learning and trialing out, available free of cost. * UiPath also has several dedicated online academies with video tutorials and various courses, which can make you a hero from zero in RPA, again free of cost. * UiPath community forum has a lot of active members and helps developers to resolve any query/tips to handle challenges related to development, deployment, and production. * The UiPath support desk replies and resolves all of our tickets/issues within a business day and even helped us by coming to our office, for tasks like license renewal, migration of bots, etc. * UiPath also has a dedicated marketplace serving as an open platform for sharing different packages by developers around the globe. This helps the developer community with reusability and scalability of features by sharing their own individual packages. View full review »

Cristian Paun says in an UiPath review
Head of Business Transformation & Procurement at Lombard
When you build a house, if you do not have a strong foundation, it's just going to fall apart, so, for us, it's a pillar. It's not the only one, but it is the cherry on the cake, that it is the one that is actually enabling the business to go further and to provide better services to our clients. At least for our case, I would say it's not the cost that was driven by attended or unattended robots. At the end of the day, my department, business transformation, I am there to transform the business for better. In some cases, you have processes in which you still need human interaction, you still need somebody to validate and make sure that, once all the data are prepared for you in the onboarding process, you certified and you double checked four eyes principle that everything is correct. In some cases you do need the attended robot. In some other cases, tax reporting for instance, you can just run it unattended and it's perfectly. You don't even need to know it. Before morning, you have the report prepared for your local authorities, and that is fine, so I think it's just a mix, depending on your business and how it's bringing much more value to you. Sometimes, it's only attended, sometimes, it's unattended, but I think, in most of the cases, you will have in any companies a mix between attended and unattended. View full review »
Daniel Lombard says in an UiPath review
Project Manager and RPA(Robotics Process Automation) Lead at a tech services company with 5,001-10,000 employees
I think it's the ease of use for the developer, so we can actually make use of people within subject matter experts rather than having fully fledged developers, so that's one of the main features. And, I think, based on that, it is actually the speed in which we can deliver some of these automations, so the delivery and the build of the box is actually much quicker than your conventional development, so those will be my two top points at this stage.

I think it's the relative ease of use. It's really bridging that gap between the human interface with the technology that we're using and giving us an automation advantage that you just couldn't get from any other type of solution. View full review »

Managing Director at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees
The way we look at it is that features are a commodity. We prefer to look at the value it provides. Having said that, it is very easy to use. We have seen new developers becoming productive in a matter of weeks, not months. The entire solution is structured in such a nice way that clients can start seeing benefits in six to eight weeks.

Sr Managing Consultant at Abacus Consulting
* The ease of the processes * There is no coding at all required to implement a complex business process. If you have some programming background, it will help you. However, if you are a business user, you can still develop simple processes. * The automated recording helps quite a bit. You record a complete business process along with human interactions to the desktop or web application. You can easily manipulate them. Once you are done, you have a complete recording of the interactions, which you can use to tweak your requirements. View full review »
